-from San Francisco, CA

- Formed in San Francisco California, Hell Fire began when bass player Herman Bandala moved to San Francisco from Tijuana Mexico with the hopes of forming a heavy metal band. Herman posted an ad to craigslist which caught the attention of guitarist Tony Campos. Both shared interests in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and early Bay Area thrash years. Influenced by bands like Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Exodus, Metallica, Riot, Virtue, Diamond Head etc. which was a hard thing to find in the Bay Area scene at the time.
  Driven and determined Hell Fire's early years were all about performing, writing songs, having fun and getting a solid line up for the band to move forward. Jake Nunn and Mike Smith were both in Hysteria another high energy heavy metal band out of the Bay Area they started in high school. Hell Fire and Hysteria shared the stage multiple times becoming some of the bay areas most prominent up and coming heavy metal acts. However both bands struggled finding solid stable members.
  Just before Hell Fire entered the studio to record their debut album 'Metal Masses' Jake Nunn joined on vocals. Replacing original singer Alex Orozco. The band spent several sessions at district studios in San Jose, California tracking the record and released it in the spring of 2016. After the release of Metal Masses the band was anxious and ready to write new material. Drummer Art Rios and guitarist Jon Mendle parted ways from Hell Fire after Metal Masses to pursue other projects.
  Jake had previously played guitar and sang with Hysteria, so he was the first to be asked if he was up to the task of taking on guitar duties as well as singing. It just felt like the natural transition to move forward. Mike Smith already a close friend of the band was asked if he would like to try out on drums. After the first practice with the new line up, everything clicked perfectly and with only 2 months until it was time to hit the studio again the band got to work. In the spring of 2017 Hell Fire entered the studio to record their follow up album 'Free Again'. Recorded over a five day session at Louder Studios in Grass Valley with producer Tim Green.  After the release of Free Again Hell Fire hit the road supporting their new release touring through out the US through the remainder of 2017 and 2018.
  In February of 2018 Hell Fire signed with RidingEasy Records and hit the road on a north american tour with fellow up and coming NWOTHM band Haunt. Now the band has just completed recording their third album scheduled to be released in the beginning of 2019 through Riding Easy Records, the bands first non independent release. This next year looks to already be the bands busiest to date, so be on the lookout for a show coming to you soon!

The Freak Accident
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Freak Accident is a  Punk/Math/Garage/Pop/Surf/Rock collision led by Victims Family/Jello Biafra and GSM guitarist-vocalist Ralph Spight. The epoynonymous debut record in 2004 (Alternative Tentacles) found Ralph exploring a multitude of Pop stylings, while 2007's "Tissue Sample" (Nerve Center Recordings) took a harder turn into Spight's signature kinetic punk stylings. An as yet unreleased 2009 EP and a full length LP are coming out soon and finds the band with a new line-up of Spight, Henry Austin Lannan on bass and Sonoma County drum legend Eric Strand who deliver an ever changing array of lysergic thunder anthems with a lyrical perspective that abandons all hope for the future.
